The Sacramento Turn Verein's Annual Bockbierfest has returned!
What is Bockbier and why does it require a festival, you ask? Bockbier is a traditional Bavarian beer that is dark in color and relatively high in alcohol content (as intoxicating carbonated beverages go). Although the Bockbier season varies from country to country, it's available for a limited time in any region, hence the need for a commemorative celebration. Sacramento's version includes lively German music by The Al Gruber Band and AKA LIVE, Bavarian folk dancing, German food, coffee cake and Bockbier flowing like the Sacramento River.
This year also features Akalive in the Banquet hall upstairs. $20.00 admission
